of reflection and recovery. what happened in newtown is nightmarish for all of us and impossible to comprehend. there are many issues to address, guns, culture of violence and how we treat the mentally ill in this country. here we'll grapple with all of that in the days and weeks to come as america will. if the slaughter of 26 doesn't provoke real reform, you have to wonder what will. first, we have to heal. so for the next hour, we discuss recovery. we begin with the president in newtown last night. >> we gather here in memory of 20 beautiful children and 6 remarkable adults. they lost their lives in a school that could have been any school. in a quiet town full of good and decent people. that could be any town in america. >> and this last hour on the senate floor. >> i ask that the united states senate observe a moment of silence to honor the victims of the sandy hook elementary school tragedy. >> today, newtown starts the first of 26 funerals. two students will be laid to rest this afternoon. first is jack pinto. a new york giants fan. smart kid. number 8, victor cruz, on sund

of the issues connected to the newtown tragedy, guns, a culture of violence, and mental hale, but despite those good efforts to take a comprehensive look at the problem, the national policy conversation inevitably reverts back to one issue, gun control, and that conversation is always the same. the left pushes, the right resists. that conversation isn't working. here is why. if you truly believe that guns are the problem, then the only intellectually honest argument is to eliminate them all. focusing only on assault weapons is a cop out. in 2010 a mere 2.8% of homicides were committed withen assault weapon while 42.6% were committed with a handgun and during the ten-year federal ban on assault weapons numerous mass shootings, including columbine, still took place. making it harder to obtain a gun is also confusing the issue. adam lanza stole the guns from his mother. gun control advocates should want her guns and all guns banned. would-be murderers don't respect those artificial boundaries. but aside from the constitutional impossibility of eliminating all guns, prohibition hasn't proven to be
after newtown, lapierre called for armed police in every school and a national mental health registry. that's right. register people who have mental health problems but no registry for gun buyers and owners. let's bring in mike who is in washington. >> reporter: the feeling is the nra may have helped its cause and the nra may have helped its fundraising cause. nra may have fired up its base. but the nra did nothing to help its cause here on capitol hill. quite the opposite. what we've heard from lawmakers today in the wake of that wasn't even a press conference he didn't take questions. in the wake of that statement that wayne lapierre made was that the impetus now -- they almost have fresh momentum. we heard diane feinstein one of the principal authors of gun legislation that has new life now. she says it doesn't matter how long it takes it may take a year, two years, three years, the conventional wisdom is after the horror from newtown dies down somewhat, after the outrage and anger has subside, congress doesn't get down to case until february after the inauguration, after the state
, as well. and the images here in newtown like that they continue to grow. i mean, the makeshift memorials. there are 26 angels that have been placed on a hillside. the 26 christmas trees that the makeshift memorial there continues to grow, as well. balloons and candles and cards and teddy bears. and behind me, as well. so many folks continue to stop by and pay their respects and to leave a momento of some sort. here's the latest on the investigation. first of all, as you probably know, schools opened in this town but no official word on when sandy hook elementary school, the students who went to school there going to a nearby middle school, no official word there on just when that is going to happen. law enforcement officers, law enforcement officials have told us they have seized a fair amount of evidence in this case. among that evidence, computer hard drives, some computers, as well. they're concerned that the evidence may be too badly damaged to be able to green any sort of useful information from it but they continue to try to do that. they have discovered that he was, the shooter, 2
of medication for that and that's the latest on the investigation and what's happening right now here in newtown, as well. >> okay. craig melvin, thank you. let's bring in harvard professor, david hemmingway who says we should treat mental health as a crisis. >>. you wrote the gun control debate often makes it look like there are only two options. take away people's guns or not. this is more like a harm-reduction strategy. recognize that there are a lot of guns out there and that reasonable gun policies can minimize the harm that comes from them. what do you mean by that and how exactly would it work? >> so, our big effort is to try to do prevention and prevent before the event happens. and so, what that means, the analogy we use is motor vehicles where you weighted in the old days to say here's an accident. it must be somebody did something wrong and mostly they did. and really wasn't until we began looking at the cars, make the car safer, make the road safer, the environment safer, let's make the ems system better that what we're trying to do is create a system hard to behave inappropriately a

rocketed upward in the wake of newtown, tennessee said gun purchases are an all time high and wal-mart sold out of sem automatics in five states. a leading bullet manufacturer said they sold three in three days and that benefits the nra because in many stores, they get $1 from the sale of every gun and every package of ammunition. a counter weight to the nra, there is a lot of money in gun rights legislation and working that side of the aisle. no money to be made in gun control. we have the total fight. >> you are right. what can we do about that? you lay out why it's a really uphill battle. maybe it is that citizens united will create the ability for billionaires and high network people or membership groups that top the fight for common sense measures to pour the kind of money into the political process to make a difference. if there is a way to combine the fiscal cliff and a way to arm those who will be full verable to losing the payroll tax in 30 days and have their gun bought back. wey category combine every possible proposal in one. ask that is an incredible idea. i am here in washingt
. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> the school shooting in newtown, connecticut, is a sobering reminder that sometimes guns fall in to the hands of people who should not have them. but what if there was a way to find out exactly who in your neighborhood owns a gun? the journal news, a local newspaper in new york city published a map of the names and addresses of every person who holds a gun permit. as you can see, the map is made up of tens of thousands of dots representing people who own gun permits in westchester county. some people are furious. so is this fair game for anyone wanting to exercise the 2nd amendment right or is it an outrageous invasion of privacy. i have to say this wrang ls for me. no matter where you stand on the debate, publishing names and home addresses in this context is really inappropriate. and look. i understand that a lot of the information is publicly available if you go out and search for it but to me this smacks of sort of naming and shaming responsible gun owners and making them seem as if they're criminals and frankly, you know, i think this is a mistake
